A father and daughter against the world

He journeyed with her
Through what was left of the world
After a catastrophe

She was so little
Much too young 
To fend for herself

Without him, she'd die
And he couldn't let that happen
Not for as long as he could help it

They journeyed through
A ruined world with
Only themselves for company

Journeying into the beyond
For a safe place to call home
And he would make sure 

She'd get there

She was the only one
He could save in the catastrophe
And she was too little

To fend for herself

This was them
Against the growing dangers of
A ruined world

He'd find her a safe place
No matter how long it took
Dangers be damned

He had to
She needed that
A safe place without the dangers

They journeyed
Through what was left of a world
Marred by a catastophe

Them against the world
Looking for home.
